Conditional Behavior of Data Entry Control on Form (Layers?)

    No need to add extra layers you can achieve this by adding conditional visible forms.

    On my label I have added a data field and a second  text field that I have named "ChangeDate". This field does not need to be shown on the label and can be dragged out of the print area, but I have left mine visible for the images below. 

    I have then added a Data Entry Form with a Yes or List Text List Box that is linked to the ChangeDate field and have also included a Preview of Template on here too.

    A second form has then be added with a Date Picker Entry linked to the Date Field on the label (plus another Preview). I have then gone into the Properties of this form and set it to only be visible if the ChangeDate value = Yes.

     

    At print time I now see this

    If no I get

    If Yes I then see, which will print the date I then choose

    Thank you!  This was so easy.  I'll admit, I'm self taught and didn't realize I could have more than one form, nor did I realize that within form properties, I could click on "Form 1" to see more options than when "Form" was highlighted.

    No problem, I am glad it worked.

    As well as multiple layers and forms you can also have multiple template layouts (albeit all the same size as the base template) and configure separate conditional printing variables for each so it can be quite a powerful tool if it needs to be.
